Marie Antoinette: The French Art of Coquettish Fleur

I would like to start by thanking our lovely hostess, Beverly of How Sweet the Sound for all of her work each week. ((((applause)))) Today, I am just thrilled to feature the lavishly decadent French art of Patricia and Coquettish Fleur. If you have not yet found Patricia's Marie Antoinette ATC cards, you might want to pop over for a peek. In a word, I can best sum up my visit as nothing short of dreamy!

Wait . . . these are not pink. Ahh! You noticed that too eh? Haha! Not to worry, the pink is coming but I couldn't resist. If you love Marie Antoinett I know you will enjoy these gorgeous ATC cards Patricia makes for the group she belongs to called Marie Antoinette Mail Art. I love the color green anyway so these beauties appealed to me instantly. Look! They are all different but fit within the same theme. Well done Patricia!

Don't you just wish you you could reach right into your screen and touch these beauties?

Now this is intriguing and leads perfectly into my announcement. I have been hired as a freelance writer for Suite 101 which will give me the opportunity to promote other artists, events, products and more through my articles, something I have been wanting to do for over a year so this is quite exciting for me. To learn how you can contribute and see your name in print, scroll down to the next article.

Happy Pink Saturday Kitty Kellie...
First of all congratulations to you are in order. What an honor.

I love these tags that you have showcased, the green is delicious, but I believe in pink it will be devine. What a wonderful crafter. Patricia's Marie Antoinette ATC cards are just so unique and fun and imaginative. I love them immensely. Thanks for sharing.

Please stop by and say hi. I so love to have company. Country hugs my friend...Sherry

Happy Pink Saturday, dear Kellie.

You just can't know how thrilled I was to come here and see that you are featuring Patricia. I am definitely one of her admirers. Each of her exquisite creations reflect the beauty in her heart.

And, you have that same wonderful quality. Your eye for beauty and love of creating show in everything you share.

Congratulations of achieving your dream.

What lovely ATC's. And yes, the first thing I said to myself was, "Those aren't pink!" My dd was sitting next to me, reading over my shoulder and she said the same thing, only out loud. :-) But you are absolutely right about the cards - the 3-dimensional touches are really special. Thanks for highlighting them. Have a wonderful Pink Saturday and I hope your Thanksgiving was fabulous.

Gorgeous cards!

Isn't that stamp set offered by LuLu Kellogg wonderful? No, I don't own it. I have been wanting it for over a year.

Congratulations on your Suite 101 start! (p.s. I sell trims, embellishments, etc at wholesale pricing for even one piece!)

Happy Pink Saturday!

What eye candy today! I have to admit that as much as I love PINK, I love black and the green (although I don't care for green) and black ones really pop!!

A belated thank you for you featuring me as a Pink Saturday quest. I am very grateful for your kindness. I have had the worst cold ever and have fallen behind a bit. I sincerly hope to take part in this wonderful group in the coming New Year. Merry Christmas to you and again - thank you.

Hello! Thank you for visiting my blog! I guess you could tell that I not only love dolls, but also Marie!

There is such lovely reading here I am afraid I will be totally engrossed and not do my work. Eeek!
